chantal acda

Stepping out of her sleepingdog shadow, Chantal Acda is shortly to release her debut solo offering. Pencilled for November release schedules on the gizeh imprint, ’let your hands be my guide’ finds this exceptional talent gathering together a small select band of like minded souls into her inner sanctum (Peter Broderick, Nils Frahm, Shahzad Ismaily and Mum’s Gyda Valtysdottir) to craft something intimate and vulnerable. Lead out track ’Jason’ has been despatched as a teaser herald to serve notice of what to expect. Lovingly rubbed in the kind of softly spectral willowy aura of a breaking morn, this nature bound pretty coos and chimes shyly dazed in dreamy folk folds teased in a beguiling longing, Acda’s vocals hushed and carefree swell and recline with a bitter sweet ache to cast a spellbinding enchantment that’s aided and vividly coloured by the mellowing tip toeing key treads and the playful pastoral pirouettes of the peek a boo string arrangement who gathered together embellish it with an affectionate disarming warmth. Need I say more.
